The next season of NASCAR is barely a month from us now. That means we’ve reached the point when sponsors and teams start treating fans with the new paint schemes of the next season’s Next Gen challengers. And one of the first new cars with a new look was the NAPA-sponsored Chevy Camaro of Chase Elliott.

2022 marks the ninth straight year for the association between the driver and NAPA as his primary sponsor; a sponsorship that saw Elliott win the Xfinity Series title and the Cup Series title with the iconic blue and yellow cars.

But this year it seems, fans weren’t all that pleased with the paint scheme. And as to how or what they weren’t pleased about, we’ll let you figure out what those specifics are based on a few of these comments and reactions.

Fans react to the new paint scheme

Sir Guet wrote, “Why do they keep putting Chevy logos on the nose. Holy freaking crap,” and Chad wrote, “It’s pretty “Meh” but those two bow ties on the nose are quite unappealing. Whats wrong with just one??”

One user went as far to say as, “This is the worst scheme from HMS if not any team for this season.”

While one fan chose between the NAPA package and another of Elliott’s sponsors as the comment read, “I always like the Hooters better, the improve with each paint scheme where every time a new Napa scheme comes out, seems like they made it worst. I love Napa sponsor, love to shop there, but their paint schemes are some of the worst.”

More paint schemes on the way for Chase Elliott

Along with the NAPA-sponsored car, Elliott fans will soon be treated with the Llumar Window Film-sponsored Next Gen car. A few days ago, Llumar had teased fans with a sneak-peek at the new paint scheme which is set to be revealed on January 13th.
